Preparing to Get a VC To Pitch You Is Like Prepping Your FICO Score

by Larry Chiang on February 25, 2013

By Larry Chiang

When I’m not immersed in being CEO at Duck9, I spend 5-8 hours per month getting VCs to pitch the entrepreneurs I know.

Do you want a VC to pitch you?!

Well, it takes preparation. General population sometimes think, “I’ll just show up with no company, no business model, and no landing page”. The general population is on the “left side of the bell curve”.

I want you on the right side of the bell curve.

Watch these videos and text me the VCs you like. After you text me, I’ll text back an email address

There are 33 videos of VCs pitching here

It helps you to ask them for advice
